Need help, gaps in layer which are left for later to be filled (cura 3.6)

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone.

So I've recently got into 3D printing.

And i've run into an issue i can't figure out how to resolve. 

I use Cura 3.6.0
While sliding prints with large flat areas, especially ones which have a flat area and then another layer on top of it (think of a badge, where you have a flat part and then stuff extreded out, i don't know how to better explain it, pictures will show), anyways. Cura leaves GAPS in the layer print, and then fills them in last... which is weird and results in some very ugly and unpleasant flat layers.


please take a look at the pictures and I hope someone can tell me which settings would cause this and how to adjust the settings to avoid these issues.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
